hamid karzai sits down for his only interview with me while in the united states. we talk about his personal relationship with president obama and even his personal relationship with mitt romney. stand by for that as well. >>> and the man sometimes nicknamed america's supermayor, has made a super gaffe. >>> i'm wolf blitzer in chicago. you're in the situation room. >>> but first, through my exclusive far reaching interview, i just completed only a few minutes ago with the afghan president hamid karzai, it's his only interview while here in the united states. we sat down only moments ago, and he spoke of president obama just minutes before the interview. the three leaders are here for a meeting in chicago. listen to this. >> no, we didn't have a three-way meeting, we had a three-way photograph taking. >> just a photo opportunity? >> why not a meeting? why not have a three-way meeting and discuss the most important issues facing afghanistan, pakistan and the united states. >> it wasn't for us to decide on the three-way meeting. the united states was the host and perhaps they saw it fi
and the missouri both had several hundred years of contact with french traders by the time the united states came along. so there were people in the tribe that could read french extremely fluently. speak it, read it, whatever. so the letters that he sent out, he sent them in that language because it was pretty much a universal language at the time. the otos and the missouris were kind of a small tribe in that they had a lot of he enemies and so they were always looking for allies and resources. so when they came along, lewis and clark saw this as them notifying that the united states now owns this territory and you're under our control or whatever. the otos saw that as a very important and potentially powerful ally against their enemies. so this was important to them. and that's probably why they kept it. lewis and clark, they met with several oto leaders at that time. one was big ax and one was big horse. now, this is the certificate of friendship that was given to big ax. and you can see his name right here. >> what does this say? >> it basically just says that the man named big ax is a friend
in two decades, we're looking at what it means for the united states. i'm wolf blitzer, you're still in "the situation room." the vice president joe biden said over the weekend he's fine with gay marriage and arnie duncan says he believes gay and lesbians should be allowed to marry. putting him at odds with the president of the united states. jessica yellin is working the story for us. jessica, causing quite an uproar there, what's going on? >> reporter: this is clearly an unwelcome topic for a white house that pronounces to make all decisions based on principle not on politics. it certainly looks as if the vice president supports gay marriage. >> who do you love? the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable that the fact that men marrying wo i and women marrying women, are entitled to all the civil rights and the civil liberties. >> reporter: but the president is vague. >> my feelings about this are constantly evolving. i struggle with this. >> reporter: this is a flash point election. to argue biden's comments weren't new. >> i think they were entirely consistent with
the united states government was drafting the moral act and the homestead act of 1862 if they ever thought about the possibility of counter fit operations being established in the midwest and northern great plains.counterfit operati established in the midwest and northern great plains. and if so what were their plans in preventing such an event. >> i found no record of that being a concern it for tfor they department, which particularly in 1862 was, if you read samson chase's, the secretary treasury's diary, it becomes clear that he was running an endless effort simply to fund the next day's operations. or argue bring the past weably operations. day after day he comes in to his office to find million of dollars of unpaid bills on his desk and he'll complain about the fact that he has no idea how to pay them. and if they had been paid in cou counterfeit money, i think that would have been fine with him. most of the republican party was strongly opposed to the idea of fiat money, greenback money, to begin with. chase and lincoln were really driven to the wall by the fact that they had no alt
and gospel music to represent the united states aboard in the struggle for hearts and minds overseas. okay. now this is also a period in which there's a connect between the civil rights movement and african independence movement. while young people in the united states cannot be served at lunch counters, african nations are gaining independence and so you have dr. king as a guest of honor at the independence festivities in ghana. there he is with the prime minister of ghana. and dr. king came back from the independence ceremonies and spoke to his congregation and really felt optimistic about the prospects for change after having seen the british colonial union jack go down and the newly independent -- the flag of the newly independent nation of ghana go up. here you have malcolm x who visited ghana after he left the nation of islam, when he was trying to start a new political formation, a more radical formation that really sort of engaged critically with the u.s. foreign and domestic policy. here he is with maya angelou who tells the story of being asked by malcolm to work for his new orga
the state question is red or green, celebrating its 100th anniversary as a stake in the united states of america, protests all seven of our delegate votes for gary johnson, the next president of the united states. >> new york, home of the statue of liberty, cast the following boats, gary johnson 24, rice aid, carl pearson, one, and jim burns, one. >> the tar heels of the great state of north carolina respectfully cockboat -- respectfully vote hell no to amendment 1 and we vote rewrote -- 3 votes for lee rice and seven votes for gary johnson. >> mr. chairman, the state of oregon, whose government will not allow us to use it, cast one vote for karl pearson, 34 rice, an aide for gary johnson. >> the delegates from the commonwealth of pennsylvania, birthplace of the declaration of independence and the united states constitution and the state that rally kicked rick santorum's ass out of the senate casts two write-in votes for sam's loan, and enthusiastically cast nine votes for the next president of the united states, gary johnson. >> home of the independent man, rarely cast one vote for b
of a yet-determined united states. the fact that not just slaves were free but that the slaves remained here had incredible consequences for the country. we can talk about the obvious good when we think about the freedom struggles of various different groups. when we think about the current marriage equality, it dates back to the civil rights movement which itself dates back to the civil war. one of the most stunning things i came across in my very recent study was when you start studying the women's rights movements and you see how many of those folks started out as abolitionists. when you hear sarah gremky saying by looking into the rights of slaves, i gained deeper insights into my own rights as a woman. that's a mangled quote but basically the essence of what she said. it is impossible for me to picture america as it is today without picturing african-americans as a political force, without picturing african-americans as a cultural force. where would we be without jazz? what is america without jazz, without its popular music? when you think about these questions that our president i
this to say. >> i do not comment on specific classified operations other than to say that the united states engages in a number of operations to go after al qaeda and their militant allies. their terrorist allies who would try to attack the united states. what this incident makes clear is that this country has to continue to remain vigilant against those that would seek to attack this country. >> we'll have the latest on this story at the top of the show. plus, debating gay marriage. it was a great case of tell me what you really think. yesterday vice president joe biden came out in favor of same-sex marriage. it's assumed he was speaking for himself, not for the president. opposing gay marriage is no longer a slam dunk for republicans. americans' attitude towards gays and gay marriage are changing incredibly fast. but, how biden's from the heart declaration will affect the election is anyone's guess. also, president obama kicked off his re-election campaign this wct weekend by rejecting the question, are you better off than you were four years ago? he said the right question is, where are
in yemen. he had been indicted in the united states on 50 terrorism counts. the fbi had offered a $5 million reward for his capture. >>> a deadly day for troops in afghanistan. a gunman dressed in an afghan army uniform shot and killed a nato service member before being killed by coalition forces. and in another province, a roadside bomb exploded killing one american and wounding two others. the explosion hit a vehicle carrying sufficient troops near an outpost close to the pakistan border. >>> the lawyer for 9/11 mastermind khalid shaikh mohammed says the military justice system is rigged, so he can't do his job. mohammed and four defendants were arraigned saturday in guantanamo bay, cuba. the hearing dragged out for 13 hours as the five accused conspirators did everything in their power to defy the court. despite the protests, the military's chief prosecutor says the trial will be fair and just. >> for those who lost family or friends on september 11th, or who were injured in the attacks, no words are adequate for this moment. but know that however long the journey, and this arraig
in the southwest section of the state of tennessee. the area was being used as a base of operations by the united states army. the army that disembarked was under the command of ulysses s. grant. the reason the army was in the area was western confederate railroads, principally the memphis and charleston line which linked to chattanooga and from there points to the atlantic seaboard. extremely important railroad for the confederate states of america. it intersected with the north-south known as the mobile and the ohio railroad, which ran from kentucky to the ohio river basin to the gulf of mexico at mobile. secretary of war leroy pope walker of the confederate states called these two railroads the vertebrae of the confederacy. and they intersected, they junctioned just 2 land ward miles to the southwest of pittsburgh landing here in west tennessee. hence the alreadies were viable military targets for the united states force news attempting to put down what they styled a rebellion, which had been the succession of 11 confederate states formally of the united states of america. we were barely less
country in its war against the united states. the constitution followed the united states constitution in giving the president the power of commander in chief. in wartime the confederate president would take political lead of this country and military lead of this country. jefferson davis certainly possessed the requisite qualities to become commander in chief and a war leader. in fact, i would maintain that few presidents who led this nation in war from the war of 1812 right down to afghanistan, could match his pedigree prior to holding office. he had military, political and administrative experience that set him apart from other southern notables in 1861. his particular background was immensely influential to his being chosen the provisional president of the confederate states. he had gone to west point. he had served for seven years as an officer in the united states army. he had distinguished combat career as a regimental commander. moreover, he'd been a member of both united states house and united states senate. in the latter 1850s he served as chair for the military affairs comm

on one thing. when you leave the east coast of the united states, you can drive for miles from state to state and not see another black face. call to montana, utah, parts of oregon and washington -- there are lots of african americans in this country but there are parts where there are none. on the broader issue, that is certainly true. the president has done a lot for not just african americans but for everyone in the country. the health-care bill, the stimulus package. we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. the shift has been helpful for everyone. you cannot count on the all.dent to do with allit you have to start a small business and take the risk of willing to fail. there are conditions that exist, but government cannot solve all those problems. they have to be solved at the committee level. host: teresa is a republican from trenton, new jersey. caller: hi. i was listening -- i really love you. you're a great democratic strategist and i love your opinions and have you correct other people and bring them back to what the heart of the problem is. thank you for that. in order for us t

or cap of your hat of united states infantry soldier. the item didn't survive the hat, but the metal did. recent archeology off the battlefield we found, we found the buckle with the leather strap and the two side buttons, and they were in the ground where the cat would have sat and deteriorated and all that was there was the buckle, and the buttons still in the orientation, they would have been at the time that the cap was either dropped there or just lied there. it's amazing. 1999 -- yeah. 1999. summer of 1999, 2-it-all started in the pring of 1999. it was brought to our attention at new site park service cane river location, in louisiana. that a family long living in that area even before the civil war had a problem of retreat of nathanael's army, of 1864. spring of 1864. the united states army left a large amount of baggage and equipage, and the family went out and recovered this. amongst it were two -- two -- civil war tents. one of those tents was a sievely tent. designed by henry hawkins sibley based on a plains indian teepee pattern. the family had had these tents in there their

history. it began back in 2009 when we refused -- when the president of the united states refused to speak up on behalf of the demonstrators in the treats of tehran and gone from one episode to another. here over a year and now talking about possibly vetting some people. look, nearly 10,000 people have died. this is a brutal regime of incredible proportions and by the way, if bashar asaad failed it it would be the greatest flow to iran in the last 25 years because it would cut off hezbollah. et cetera. horrible things are happening in syria. this administration has a federal government feckless foreign policy which abandons foreign policy. i know because i visited with these people that they are willing to help these people and they are already helping them some. it cries out for american leadership. american leadership is not there. >> chris: let me follow up. there is a story on the front page of the new york times that president obama is considering trying to get assad out diplomatically with the help of the russians. how likely do you think that is? >> again, here we are a year later,
. and they counterattack. the slave owning elite in the united states, they fight back. and all slave owners did that throughout the 19th century. whenever anti-slavery movements get started in other parts of the world, in the british empire, in spain, in other places in central and south america, slave owners respond and they fight back. and they try their best to stop emancipation. they cling to that institution which has benefitted them so much. and in the united states that happens. slave owners notice right away that the abolitionist movement has geared up and these people are mounting a direct rhetorical attack on the institution. and they respond right away. this is the first sustained criticism of slavery as an institution since the revolution, so they fight back. and many of them are themselves politicians, public figures. many slave owners were also governors, members of the state legislature in the u.s. senate, and some of them actually became president of the united states as we said earlier. so they fight back. also newspapers editors, ministers, they know that this is a threat. and
to him. >> eduardo saverin wants to de-friend the united states of america just to avoid paying taxes. and we aren't going to let him get away with it. >> shepard: senator schumer are announcing legislation called the expatriot act. it would apply to anybody who has had to pay an average of $148,000 in income taxes. folks within that group who have renounced their citizenship in the last decade would have to prove they didn't do it just to avoid paying taxes. if they fail, the acted would flap a heavy tax on future u.s. investments and prevent them from ever again returning to the united states of america. the fox business network's peter barnes is live in washington. peter, this facebook co-founder's representative says is he going to pay everything he owes but it's not clear exactly what that means. >> well, shep, he does not get out of jail free. under existing tax law, saverin has to pay something called an exit tax, which everybody pays when they give up their u.s. citizenship. that would likely be 15% capital gains taxes on the value of his assets on the day before he renounced
many lives, it's going to help the united states continue to be the world leader for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries and mean a lot to our economy as well. and with that, and thanks to all, i urge all members to support this very important legislation and yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the question is, will the house suspend the rules and pass h.r. 5651 as amended. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, 2/3 being in the affirmative -- mr. pitts: i request the yeas and nays. the speaker pro tempore: the yeas and nays are requested. those in support of taking this vote by the yeas and nays will rise and remain standing until counted. pursuant to clause 8 of rule 20, further proceed thonings question will be postponed. for what purpose does the quelt from louisiana seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i move to suspend the rules and pass h r. 3310 as amended. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. the clerk: h.r. 3310, a bill to amend the communications act of 1934 to consolidate the
pressure on him by the united states marshal service and the f.b.i. and the highway patrol and all the agencies that came together. it paid off. >>shepard: when you found them did they have supplies? were they dug in? did he have a plan? >>guest: i don't believe he had a plan. i believe he was roaming in the woods and trying to stay hidden. he did have some water. but it appears possibly creek water and may not have been very pure water. >>neil: he won't be needing any water anymore. sheriff edwards who helped relate cue the girls. thank you. >>shepard: and now to the lawyers. judge today refused to drop the campaign corruption charges against senator john edwards, and the prosecution yesterday rested their indicate. john edwards' lawyers argued they failed to prove he intentionally violated the law. the position says john edwards knew he used campaign cash to hide his mistress and love child from the voters and his lawyers say he didn't know of the cash. and his aide, andrew young, spent the most on his dream him. if convicted john edwards, former united states senator, and candid
the united states senate. matt by yesterday with the times said this was not a johnsonian moment, in fact it looked quite weak. historically, do you agree with matt by? do you agree with what sam stein said? how significant is it for barack obama to come out and say that he supports gay marriage, despite the fact that he says i'm going to allow states to ban it, despite the fact he said something that we all knew before he talked to robin roberts? >> well, it's not 1957, and it's not by far obviously '64 or '65 where you had federal legislation undoing jim crow and remarkably strong barriers to racial justice. those achievements are not within hailing distance of this. because what the president did was make a rhetorical statement that he -- i think sam has a good point. this is important to a lot of americans. and it signals the president's support of these initiatives, whether he actually puts any political or governmental power attempts behind it is another question. but rhetorically, this is a good thing for libertyianism, people who support the rights of all americans to participate
opening in the united states for every 3.3 unemployed americans. pretty tough odds. boy, oh boy, this is a huge story today about the facebook ipo. it officially gets started 11:00 trading today. social networking giant, a huge american success story goes public. it's set to hit the market in a couple hours. 900 million users worldwide came from an idea that was con concocted in a dorm room at harvard. it's valued at $100 billion. try to wrap your head around that number. the price will be $38 a share. it has been ratcheted up as all the excitement continues to gather around this stock. you can see people on the floor of the new york stock exchange. the average invest jr. will likely pay a lot more than that. we'll see what happens at the open. a number of levels why this story is so interesting today. i'm joined by stuart varney. let's deal with the hype first. is this company worth all that money? >> i haven't a clue. that's the honest hans. i do not know whether facebook is a good investment, a bad investment. i don't know if stock is going to go up or down. but i'll tell you
american success story gone horribly wrong. eduardo saverin wants to defriend the united states of america, just to avoid paying taxes, and we aren't going to let him get away with it. >> democratic senator bob casey of pennsylvania is one of two senators who introduced the ex-patriot act. senator, good morning. >> good morning. >> i know we're talking a lot about eduardo saverin in particular but if there was one catalyst for you all to draft this legislation, this ex-patriot act, what was it? >> well, certainly, this is the most egregious example that we know of, but there are more than 1,700 other people who have done the same thing, and the basic thrust of this legislation says that if you expatriate yourself, in other words leave the country, renounce your citizenship, the legislation would provide a 30% tax on the gains that would you get, any kind of future investment gains if, and this is the key thing, if the irs were to determine that the reason you left was for a substantial tax purpose. if they make that finding, and it has to be an objective finding, then the tax would apply.
